Paint Correction FAQ's

Paint Correction Services

QUESTION 1:
“WHAT DOES A PAINT CORRECTION DO?”

ANSWER 1:
Paint Corrections include scratch removal, swirl removal and the removal of overspray, buffer trails and oxidation.

Paint correction only corrects damage to the clear coat. If there is a scratch that went all the way through your clear and into the base layer of your paint, you will need to take it to a body shop to be repainted.

QUESTION 2:
“WHAT ARE THE 3 STAGES OF PAINT CORRECTION?”

ANSWER 2:
The first step is the most aggressive in terms of cutting your paint. We start out with a heavy cutting compound and cutting pad. If swirls are severe enough, we will use a wool pad to cut and level your clear coat quicker and more efficiently.
The second step of a 3 step paint correction includes a polishing pad and cutting polish. A cutting polish includes very fine abrasives, much finer than a compound. This will help refine the work done in the first step and properly set up for the third step.

The third step is completed with a finishing polish that will put a deep glossy shine on your paint. Included in the third step is applying a sealant. Whether it is a wax or a ceramic coating, a sealant will help protect your fresh paint correction.

QUESTION 3:
“IS A PAINT CORRECTION WORTH IT?”

ANSWER 3:
Paint correction is the best way to maintain healthy paint to avoid clear coat failure. It is also a great route to go if you are trying to sell your vehicle and get the most out of your investment. The used car market is booming right now and a full paint correction could add $1,000-$5,000 depending on your make and model.

Ceramic Coating FAQ's

Ceramic Coating

QUESTION 1:
“WHAT DOES A CERAMIC COATING DO?”

ANSWER 1:
A ceramic coating protects your vehicle’s paint from ever oxidizing, and it blocks harmful UV rays from damaging your paint. It also protects very well against scratches which PPF and vinyl wraps can not do.
It also adds a candy gloss look to your paint, leaving it continually shining. No need to wax your car ever again!
We offer lifetime warranties on our System X Ceramic Coating Packages.

QUESTION 2:
“IS CERAMIC COATING GOOD FOR YOUR CAR?”

ANSWER 2:
Ceramic coating is a great barrier between your vehicle’s paint and harsh contaminants such as acidic road debris, salt air, UV rays and rock chips.
Another great perk about our ceramic coating packages is that they come with a full lifetime warranty and reporting to Carfax. We come out for yearly inspections to maintain the thickness of your coating.
Reporting our ceramic coating to Carfax will add value to your investment. The amount added depends on the make and model of your vehicle. The nicer the vehicle, the greater the impact a ceramic coating makes on the resale value.

QUESTION 3:
“CAN I DO CERAMIC COATING MYSELF?”

ANSWER 3:
That depends on your skill level and knowledge of paint correction. To properly prepare a vehicle for a ceramic coating application, you must remove all swirls, scratches and other paint defects.
Once you lay the ceramic coating onto the paint, whatever is under the coating will be locked into its current condition until the coating is removed or wears off over the years.
Leave the ceramic coating and prep work to our team of certified ceramic installers over here at Shyne Mobile Auto Detailing in Orange County, California.

Clay Bar FAQ's

Clay Bar Decontamination

QUESTION 1:
“WHAT DOES CLAY BAR DO?”

ANSWER 1:
You should clay your vehicle every 3-4 months. Maintaining healthy paint means making sure that there is no contaminant build up as this leads to clear coat failure.

A clay bar removes all of the stuck on contamination that a hand wash will not be able to remove.

Contaminants, including tree sap, road debris, tar and other environmental pollution. This process of claying your car gives a glassy smooth feeling to your paint, now that it is completely decontaminated.

When claying your vehicle you must give it a thorough hand wash prior to using a clay bar. Once you are ready to begin claying your car, apply a clay lubricant onto a section of your vehicle and a spray or two on the clay itself. You can never be too safe when working with vehicle paint. Make sure to work in small areas so that the clay will work efficiently with the lubricant. You want the clay to glide smoothly over the paint so that you are not dragging the clay on the bare paint itself.

QUESTION 2:
“DOES CLAY BAR DAMAGE CLEAR COAT?”

ANSWER 2:
NO! Clay bar does not damage the clear coat. Although clay is abrasive, as long as you are using enough clay lubricant, you will not run into any issues.

Claying your vehicle 2-3 times per year will maintain a healthy paint condition and increase the life and shine of your paint.

It also allows wax to properly coat your vehicle and protect the freshly clayed paint. By removing all of the surface contaminants, wax is able to create a proper seal on your paint for maximum protection.

Not to mention…Claying your car gives your paint a deeper and glossier looking finish.
